Absolutely Authentic from A to Z! Zealous

I grew up in church and this word always seemed to be used. You know "be zealous for the Lord."  Blah Blah!  Not that I am mocking the church, because I am not.  I am mocking using it around kids, because I honestly had NO idea what it meant! 

When I think about this word and being authentically zealous, I feel that it is the perfect word to wrap up my A to Z blogging. 

The whole purpose of the last 26 days of writing for me was to be real, to be authentic.  I want my life to be about who I am.  I want it to be about my journey.  As I think about that and ponder over how I can live authentically zealous...it just blows my mind because there are so many ways.  One definition I looked up said "ardently devoted to a purpose." 

So being authentically zealous for a real life.  Being authentically zealous for journeying through this life with courage, adventure, honesty, and understanding.  There are going to be great days, and there are going to be tough days, but the reality is that as long as I am being authentically zealous for the journey.....well then there is nothing else to do but live, and love, and laugh along the way.

I once knew someone who called me a zealot all the time, because I am a Christian. He meant it as a slam, but I didn't mind that at all.

Some people maybe need dictionaries. ;-)

Congratulations on completing the A to Z challenge for 2015.
We made it! (I did 5 blogs this year for the series - all on different topics. Whew.)
